Turn Heads With Trendy Festival Hats On Any Budget

Right up there with sunglasses, a stylish sun hat is an essential summertime accessory—especially if you’re attending an outdoor concert or music festival. Hats not only protect your face from the sun, they also add an instant cool factor to your outfit and provide a little shade when you’re dancing. Basically, festival hats are functional and stylish and we can’t get enough of them. Here, we’re sharing a few of our favorite toppers to rock out in this season.

Music Festival Hat Game Strong Inspo

Simply Chill
Summer and straw hats go hand in hand. Thanks to its white ribbon, this chic hat from Mango ($18) will go great with anything while adding a feminine touch to the outfit. Plus, it’s affordable too.

Pretty In Pastel
We bet you’ve never seen a fedora in this pretty pastel pink color before, which is what makes the sweet Lack Of Color hat ($59) a standout choice for an outdoor concert. No one else will be wearing it.


Super Model Vibes
This bohemian Ale By Alessandra topper ($85) has music festival vibes written all over it. It’ll look totally on trend paired with a choker and a pair of cutoff shorts. Bonus: Super model Alessandra Ambrosio is the boss behind the brand, which features tons of sweet fest styles.

Cadet Chic
The unique Janessa Leone cadet-style shape of this hat ($250-$275) is what makes it so special. It comes in bleach and black, and features ribbon and metal embellishments that give the airy cap just the right amount of pop for an outdoor fest.

Leather + Feathers
This Gladys Tamez hat ($360) is just begging to be worn at a music festival, and it was hand made in Los Angeles so that’s super cool. Its leather band and feather accents are everything. Looking for a similar black hat, but for less than twenty dollars? Peep this stylish straw hat ($18) and add your own feathers.
